Hey all,

Earlier in the year this time, OpenTech 2011 is on 21st May.

Announcement is below, but we're looking for talks, sponsorship, and much
much more. If you can help with those, just email us. If not, you can be
possibly even more helpful by considering which groups you'd like to hear
from, and passing the below onto any mailing lists you think relevant.

thanks, Sam
